Toy manufacturer Fisher-Price is recalling about 44,000 children’s Power Wheels Barbie Campers due to a malfunctioning gas pedal that could be a potential “injury hazard,” according to the company.
In a posting on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, Fisher-Price said the toy “can continue to run after the foot pedal is released,” which might cause injury. The company has received 17 reports of this malfunction occurring, but no injuries have been reported.
The model number for the toy car is FRC29, and it is printed on a label under the hood. The cars are battery-operated and have a play kitchen, a fold-out grill and pretend campfire.
The toys were sold for $400 at Walmart stores and at Walmart.com starting in July.
“Consumers should immediately take the recalled Power Wheels away from children, stop using them and contact Fisher-Price for a free repair,” the company said.
